This recipe is actually a spin-off of one of our favorite desserts – Hot Apple Crisp. I thought, how yummy would it be to put those baked cinnamony apples right on top of some creamy soaked gluten-free oatmeal! Be sure to drizzle on some of the delicious apple-caramel sauce from the bottom of the baking dish! Mmm!
P.S. This is just one delicious way we like to spice up our morning oatmeal. For more ideas, check out my special recipe section devoted to Wholesome Oatmeal Recipes & Breakfast Porridges. Enjoy!
How to Soak Oats for Delicious, Nutritious Oatmeal:
Step One: Soak your gluten-free oats overnight, following the recipe instructions below. If you’re new to “soaking,” please check out the note “How to Soak Grains for Optimal Nutrition.”
If you’re gluten-free and can tolerate oats, I recommend using certified GF rolled oats and combining them with ground buckwheat groats for your soak, as outlined in the recipe notes below.
Step Two: Tired of sour-tasting soaked oatmeal? Gently rinsing soaked oats not only helps them to be less “pasty” in texture, but also helps to reduce any sour flavor that may develop as a result of the soaking process. In fact, by using apple cider vinegar instead of a dairy acid medium (such as kefir or yogurt) and by making sure to gently rinse your soaked oats, your family will be able to enjoy completely “sour-free” soaked oatmeal!
Step Three: Cook the oats to your desired consistency and ENJOY – so simple and SO delicious!
